We have a panel of “blue sky” people, because when they see rain, they are able to feel sunshine. There is not a panicking-prone one in the lot, and they are working so you too can see a little more blue in the sky relative to persons in our community without homes.

What impressed me most [about these panelists], they had one goal in mind – treating these homeless individuals like people; treating them with respect and giving them an opportunity to attain the highest level of self-sustainability that they possible could.
